Roads and trails

New protected bike lanes on Speers Road (Third Line to Fourth Line)

The town has new cycling infrastructure on Speers Road. The new bike lanes will make it easier, safer and more enjoyable to bike along this major connector road. Construction of Phase One of the Speers Road protected bike lanes (Third Line to Fourth Line) is now complete. The protected bike lanes are separated from traffic by concrete curbs and painted buffers. They feature a unique shared transit stop that doesn’t require buses to pull into the bike lane when picking up or offloading bus passengers. 

To learn more, visit our Shared Protected Bicycle Lanes page.

Bike to bus along Third Line

You can now bike to any of the twelve bus stops along Third Line from Abbeywood Drive/Kings College Drive to Pine Glen Road, lock your bike at one of the bike racks and board Oakville Transit to complete your trip. 

This program is supported by the Public Transit and Infrastructure Fund.

Crosstown Trail

A four-metre-wide asphalt multi-use trail has been added at the Crosstown Trail from Neyagawa Boulevard to east of Trafalgar Road. The paved trail is designed to be safe and balanced for all users. The trail provides rest areas and connects with community centres, public transit, parks, schools, and other key destinations. The area also has a bike repair station at the Sixth Line intersection. 

This project was made possible with the support of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.

Storage and parking

Bike corrals

A continuing pilot project, bike corrals are in place on Bronte Road near Marine Drive and on Kerr Street near Herald Avenue throughout the summer and into the fall. The corrals accommodate 10 to 12 bikes in about the same amount of space as a parked car.

Secure bicycle parking at the downtown parking garage

There are fifteen secure bike parking spots at the 300 Church Street parking garage, monitored by security cameras and in sight of the parking attendant 24 hours a day. The area includes a multi-tool repair and tune-up station with standard screwdrivers, wrenches, a built-in pump with pressure gauge, and more. 

This program is supported by the Metrolinx Bikelinx program.
